Chinese Tourists Are Already Destroying Shanghai Disneyland... And It's Not Even Open Yet!
It's no secret that Chinese tourists have made a bad reputation for themselves as of late, no thanks to their "uncivilised" behaviour when abroad
The list of uncivilised behaviour from Chinese tourists sighted abroad include vandalising iconic scenes or artifacts (e.g. climbing cherry blossom trees), unruly conduct in public spaces (e.g. clamouring to pile food up in buffet lines), lack of hygiene in public facilities (e.g. littering, doing the number two in airplane toilet sinks, letting their kids pee on airplane carpets), and many others.
It seems like they are no different back at home in China. Case in point - the USD5.5 billion (RM22 billion) Shanghai Disneyland is already seeing the effects of unruly Chinese tourists, and it's not even officially opened yet!
Thousands of visitors have been flocking to the unopened theme park since a metro station opened nearby last month. However, there isn't much to do except to linger around in the village garden outside the gates.
Even so, that is not stopping visitors - mostly locals - from leaving the place filled with trash and scratching graffiti onto freshly-painted lamp posts
Unfortunately for the freshly-planted flowers and grass in the outer gardens, visitors had no qualms trampling over them to take a shortcut or to frame a perfect picture
We can't even imagine what would happen when the theme park finally opens and tourists come trickling in!
